Chiropractor may be too aggressive if you have a lot of damage.

Muscle balancing massage like "Structural Energetics (do a Google search), would be a better option than a regular massage.

There are other hands-on techniques like:
"neuro-facial release"
or
"cranial sacral release"

which are also very good for some people.
